    A monthly column rounding up the best of the capital's art scene

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 22/10/2014

    » The opening of WTF Gallery's current exhibition "Monday 2 Monday" earlier this month might have been missed by a few. That could partly be explained by the exhibition's title and the fact that the opening was actually on a Friday. In addition, the gallery is closed on Mondays. But this is all beside the point.

    Threading her way through Islam

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/09/2016

    » The painting looks computerised, yet there are imperfections as if it was made by hand. Looking closely, the forms on the work seem abstract, yet from afar, they are clearly human figures kneeling down as if praying. Entitled Jamaah 2, an Arabic term loosely meaning the act of doing good in congregation with the community, the work is by Thidarat Chantachua, and it was the winner of the 2015 UOB Painting of the Year Award in the Established Artist Category.

    The future, in reverse

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/06/2016

    » On the surface, artist Apichatpong Weerasethakul's video of a night journey through a temple doesn't seem to be in dialogue with photographs of Sakhalin island by Japanese Tomoko Yoneda. Nor does there seem to be any connection between Field Recordings' video work documenting migrant workers on the banks of Shanghai's Huangpu River and MAP Office's incredibly detailed imaginary map of "future Hong Kong".

    Bangkok is alive with the sound of music

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 01/04/2015

    » Last year was a quiet for musicals in Bangkok. This year, however, we have already seen two musical productions, from a small adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion at Thonglor Art Space to the original Broadway musical Beauty And The Beast earlier this month. This week alone, there are two more productions, from veteran Yuthtana Lopanpaibul's Thai version of The Sound Of Music opening tomorrow at Muangthai Rachadalai Theatre, to, beginning on Saturday, a stage adaptation by Teravat Anuvatudom of the 2004 film Hom Rong (The Overture), the debut performance at KBank Siam Pic-Ganesha, Siam Square One.

    Becoming blissfully aware

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/05/2015

    » Jenjira Pongpas has no clue what Blissfully Yours, the 2002 Cannes Film Festival's Un Certain Regard prize-winning film by director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, is all about. Not while first reading the script, not while acting it in, not after the film won the prestigious award that heralded Thai art house cinema, and not even today.

    » The historic old town of Songkhla is always full of life. But everything -- the people and the picturesque old neighbourhood flanked by the lake on one side and ocean on the other -- was accentuated over the past weekend.

    » Every use of the word "sunlight" in Duncan Macmillan's play Every Brilliant Thing, was replaced with "sunset" by director Pawit Mahasarinand in his Thai adaptation, which has just finished its run at Chulalongkorn University's Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre for Dramatic Arts last week.

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 15/10/2014

    » Last July, Toot Yung Art Center’s artistic director Myrtille Tibayrenc returned to her hometown in the South of France, accompanied by Thai artist Pakitsilp Varamissara. For Tibayrenc, the one-month trip was the first holiday she had had in three years. For Pakitsilp, it was an artist residency trip that resulted in a collection of oil paintings, sketches and watercolours for an ongoing exhibition “French Resonance”.
